Thursday Thirteen 339: A Walk in the Arboretum No. 2

Back on June 19, I shared some of the many photos taken during a spring day spent at the Arboretum in A Walk in the Arboretum No. 1. After wandering the woods and visiting some of the wetlands, I ended the day in Longenecker Horticultural Gardens. Longenecker is a 50-acre area north of the Visitor Center that features trees, shrubs and vines of Wisconsin. With the long, hard winter and cold spring, everything was flowering late this year, but I did find some rhododendron, magnolia and a few others in bloom.

Colleen: Thank you, I thought that arbor was beautiful with all the blossoming trees around it.

It's like a time warp. Very Spring like.

Oooooh absolutely beautiful. I went and fished all comments out of spam. Darn Wordpress. I'll try and remember to check on Thursdays.

Heather said...

Alice: Yup, LOL. What can I say, I had no time to throw something together this week, so ended up uploading pics to work computer to post today. Seemed only right to go all the way back to where I left off on my numbered walks. *G*

Jennifer: Thank you -- for both the compliment and for fishing me out of the spam folder. Once someone marks me as "not spam" I'm usually okay on that person's blog, but who knows how many of my comments on Wordless Wednesdays and Skywatch Fridays are actually being caught? :-\

Oh, are these pictures lovely. I thought of you this week. I went to the zoo and they had all these awesome flowers. I pulled out my camera because I want to do a flower blog like you sometime soon. Thanks for the inspiration.

Hey, I can't say anything. I'm still using pictures I took last year.

Alice: I'm been known to dip into my archives from time to time, too -- especially during winter. :D
